Race Day Information

Race Numbers: There are three race numbers in your race packet that you are required to display during the event. The adhesive bike number must be attached to your bike with the race number clearly visible. The adhesive helmet number must be worn on the front of your bike helmet and clearly visible. The run number must be displayed during the bike and run segment on the front of your body. Pin your run number to your shirt, swimsuit or race belt with the four safety pins provided
in your packet. You will not be able to enter the transition area until your bike and helmet number are in the specified places.

Body Marking: Body marking will take place at packet pick up on Friday, April 17th and from 5:00am – 6:30am on Saturday, April 18th. You will not be permitted in the transition area on race day without your body markings. Do not apply body lotion or sunscreen until after you have your body markings. Body markings should match your bib number.

Transition Area Access: NEW THIS YEAR: The transition area will NOT be open on during packet pick-up. It will be open on race day only from 5:00am-7:30am. On race day, only athletes with markings and race bibs will be allowed access to the transition area. Transition area on race day will close at 7:30am sharp. One Parent/Guardian may enter the transition area WITH an athlete ONLY to assist with equipment removal upon the completion of the event. The transition area is expected to open when the bike course is all-clear which we anticipate will be around 8:30am. The Tampa Bay Kids Triathlon Race Director has the final say of when the transition area will open for equipment removal. We thank you in advance for your cooperation on this matter as athlete safety is our number one priority.

Note: NO parents/guardians are allowed in transition area before or during the race. We will have bike techs and knowledgeable volunteers to assist the athletes in transition.

Transition Area Conduct: For safety reasons, you will not be permitted to ride your bike in or out of the transition area. You must walk while in the transition area. Please be aware of other athletes as you move through the transition area and follow all instructions from race officials, bike techs and volunteers. Participants will not be allowed to exit transition until their bike helmets are securely fastened.

Timing Chips: You will receive an ankle chip in your race packet. DO NOT LOSE YOUR CHIP. Each chip is unique to you so do not trade your chip with another athlete. Please make sure that the number on the chip, matches your bib number. We will attached the ankle chip when the athlete arrives for body marking. The chip must be worn around either ankle prior to the start of the swim and must be worn during the entire race. Participants are able to dispose of their chip following the race.

Illegal Items: Aero bars, training wheels, wheel pegs and all musical devices/headphones are not permitted.

Special Needs Table: There will be a table set up at the swim finish for the collection of your eye glasses, medications or other special needs items. You will be responsible for clearly marking all your items with your name and race number. You will also be responsible for leaving them at the table prior to the swim start – volunteers will guard the table and help monitor the distribution of items as you exit the lazy river.
